SDK Locations



SDK versioning

The SDK releases are versioned using semantic versioning, where each version is denoted by <major-version>.<minor-version>.<patch>.


Each SDK release is available as a minified JavaScript file for each supported media player, accessible at the following locations:

  •<player>.min.js -- delivers the latest version of the SDK (stable or unstable). Not recommended for production.
  •<player>.min.js -- delivers the latest stable version of the SDK.
  •<major-version>/<player>.min.js -- delivers the latest stable version of the SDK for the specified major version. Recommended for production use.
  •<major-version>.<minor-version>/<player>.min.js -- delivers the latest stable version of the SDK for the specified major and minor version. Recommended for production use.
  •<major-version>.<minor-version>.<patch>/<player>.min.js -- delivers the SDK for the specified version.
Specific SDK Locations for Version 1.2.2.


Running the Sample Players



  • A web server
  • A web browser (e.g., Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome)


To run the sample players, you need to deploy the sample players to a web server and point your browser to the sample players. Assuming your web server is running on port <PORT_NUMBER>, and you deployed the examples folder to the web server directory, browse to localhost:<PORT_NUMBER>/examples/<media-player>/ where <media-player> is one of the supported media players.
